Happy birthday to Nikki Reed who turns 25 today (May 17)! The Twilight actress tweeted yesterday: “You guys are so sweet with all of the early birthday wishes and videos! Thank you! Only one more day until “25″ happens!”
Besides acting and being a musician – Reed has branched into jewelry design. She has partnered with contemporary fashion and denim brand 7 For All Mankind on an exclusive jewelry collection.
She designed five pieces that are directly inspired by 7 For All Mankind’s spring 2013 clothing line and explained in an interview how she got into the project.
“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do being from a full family of artists. I talked to my manager about it and then it all just happened.”
Asked if she notices any similarities between writing music and jewelry design she replied, “I do because they are both an intimate and creative process, and both require drawing from personal experience and inspiration.”
Married to Paul McDonald - she also added, “As a newlywed, everything I do is infused with love!”
